a listen. >> they put a new obama care board in charge of cutting medicare each and every year to lead to deny care for current seniors. the board, 15 people. the president is supposed to appoint him next year and not one needs medical training. social security, if we don't shore up social security when we run out of the ious, and the program goes bankrupt, 25% across the board benefit cut kicks in on the current seniors in the middle of their retirement. we'll stop that happening. >> david: so that was a big moment for vice president biden hoping to pigeon hole congressman ryan on the medicare,, the thing he supported cutting that money on that program. who won that moment? >> guest: i think ryan was very impressive in defending his position on that. that was ryan's key vulnerability. that the concept that the ryan budget initially put in avoucher system for medicare. did not give seniors the right to choose traditional medicare. he doubled back on it and year later proposed they do be given that choice. then he went to the offensive about the administration death panel as sarah palin
two. don't take the obama campaign slogan forward likely because it's the only thing standing in the way of a massive roll back of the domestic policy achievements including robust middle class, social security, medicare, health care ee form, women's growing equality and a more racially growing america. don't get me wrong. here's point number three. re-electing president obama by itself won't be sewer to protect all these triumphs. let's be clear with point number four. voting for mitt romney is likely to result in the end of or rolling back many of the accomplishments which leaves me saying to undecided voters a very important point, number five. >> my job! >> wake up undecided because the candidates' records tell the tail. let's take a look at a few of the issues that should be on your radar. point number seven. taxes, depending on who we're length, their tax policy will affect you for years to come. on thursday, vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan tried to make the case for the respective ticket's tax plans, take a look. >> our entire premise of these tax ref
that he would be too lofty so i think he was more cautious. >> so if nothing is done medicare would go bankrupt, right? so who should the public trust? has the obama camp forwarded any sort of a workable plan to save it? >> well, i think that there's a lot of work that need to be done on both sides. but the reason paul ryan doesn't do well on this plan it's a bad plan and it scares people to death. that's why they didn't want to go deeper on it. but the democrats have a long way to go on this as well. this is an important program. we need to roll up our sleeves. i think the obama folks have made great progress in some of the things that they've done but they haven't sold everyone on this. so there's a lot of work to be done on both sides. the president's plan is clearly better tan what paul ryan has put on the table thus far. >> erin, the ultimate takeaway from the debate, is there a sense it could help one side or the other? do you think it moves the needle at all? >> the snap polls show that the voters didn't really seem to think that there was a clear winner. but the romney campaign
the message that the romney/ryan plan ends medicare tor future retirees as the "wall street journal" reported or going into the key states like ohio and talking about how the automotive bailout under president obama's leadership saved the economy of that state and helped to rebuild it and many midwestern states, so it is using those resources to target individuals in the neighborhoods and knocking on doors the and phone banks, and we know that t plays a role, but connecting the issues with the voter. that is the challenge, and the real challenge for the democrats is to tack tor factor in the su money, because we will see $17 billion flood the system. we have to be on the ground and aggressive. >> we will see if the campaign takes your advice. thank you, robert zimmerman. >> thank you. >>> and los angeles is saying hello to the newest star resident. the spaceship "endeavour" is rolling through tinsel town on the latest mission. find out where it is headed. we will have a live report straight ahead. ♪ into a high-tech masterpiece? whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology and
we have to eliminate fraud. if you think there is a lot of fraud now in the medicare- medicaid world, wait until you see the kind of fraud and corruption in things that are over budget under president obama's healthcare plan. i am going to say something that is on popular because i would rather take a principled stand. number one, there is no support in our federal constitution for the federal government getting involved in anything related to health care. show me where it is in congress's powers and i will change my mind. number two, involving the federal government and healthcare is one of the worst decisions are country got involved in. we have a situation and we need to move in a way that does not cause harm to our citizens to get out of that situation, but we need to stand up finally in our country, take a principled position that there needs to be our wall of separation between government and health care and government and most things. >> the for care act. how would you have voted? >> the way it is, -- the affordable care act. >> i would not have voted for the way it was. the r
, and that's what i've done in washington. senator obama has never taken on his party leaders on a single major issue. i've taken them on. i'm not too popular sometimes with my own party, much less his. so medicare, it's going to be a little tougher. it's going to be a little tougher because we're talking about very complex and difficult issues. my friends, what we have to do with medicare is have a commission, have the smartest people in america come together, come up with recommendations, and then, like the base-closing commission idea we had, then we should have congress vote up or down. let's not let them fool with it anymore. there's too much special interests and too many lobbyists working there. so let's have -- and let's have the american people say, "fix it for us." now, just back on this tax, you know, again, it's back to our first question here about rhetoric and record. senator obama has voted 94 times to either increase your taxes or against tax cuts. that's his record. when he ran for the united states senate from illinois, he said he would have a middle income tax cut. you
